Parenting A Child With A Disability

Parenting is rewarding, yet can be challenging at times. Parenting a child with additional support needs can also place extra strain on the family. Parents and carers of children with a disability can call our counsellors for support with a wide range of concerns.

Some of the main concerns parents and carers of children with a disability call our counsellors for support are:


  • Support coping and understanding your child’s recent diagnosis of disability
  • Helping you find Early Childhood Intervention services and supports
  • Accessing supports that enable you to parent more effectively
  • Finding the right supports for your child at different developmental stages
  • Techniques to manage stress and anxiety
  • Support to navigate the NDIS and understand your child’s NDIS Plan
